Tips for Growing Out A Fringe

uk fashion blogger


Im currently in the process of growing out my fringe (or bangs if you will). I’ve totally hit that awkward length between them looking cool and chic and being a little bit too overgrown. I’ve decided to avoid reaching for my hair dressing scissors and take the time to actually grow it out. I know patience is a virtue and not one that I currently possess. Here are some of the tips I’ve picked up along the way to try and manage my tresses! 


Trims are Important. Okay so I know I said don't reach for the scissors but it is important when your growing out your fringe (or your hair!) to go for regular trims. It’ll keep your hair looking healthy and help it grow. It’ll also help them not look such a straggly mess!

Switch up your Parting.  I’ve switched my parting from a center parting with full front fringe to a side sweep. When my fringe has reached and acceptable length I want to have a flipped over side parting so Im already starting to teach my hair the way I want it to fall. Putting them to the side is also a great way to hide that awkward length!

Pin Pin Pin. Pick a hairstyle that keeps your hair in check. I like to pin my fringe to the sides and then smoothing them down with a styling product. The pins stop my fringe from awkwardly sticking out and hide the fact they arent an ideal length!


Braid it. A few hair styles you can use to hide your fringe as it grows include braiding them back away from your hair, smooth down any flyways with product to prevent them poking out. Chic and easy to do!

  5. Currently trying to grow my fringe as well as the rest of my hair right now...It's got to the stage where I'm just throwing it up in a ponytail. A very small ponytail at that too.

  8. Totally agree with pinning back - the half-up top knot is a great way to wear the short layers

  13. The whole reason i never get a fringe is exactly this. I have no idea what to do when I grow it out. I'm getting my hair done soon so after reading this a fringe is definitely on the cards for me

  15. I used to have a really blunt fringe and it was a nightmare when it came to growing it out especially with the fringe being all one length! Great tips Lily!

  17. I had to go through this lengthy and slightly annoying stage as well - hair pins were definitely an absolute essential at that time ^_^

  18. I'm so glad you're growing out your fringe! I know it's your hair and everything, but I'd still say this to you face to face! I felt like the fringe was hiding your face D:

  19. I've been trying to grow out my fringe for months now, it's such a long process. I've started changing my parting more to make up blend in better!

  22. Your hair looks great though! You generally suit a few few different styles, but this sort of mid-length is particularly good on you.

    I have serious eyeliner envy here.

  25. Ah fringe growing is such a pain! I've had my fair few episodes, i found switching up the parting was really helpful, also if you took a new parting which swept longer hair over the fringe you can use it to tuck behind your ear!
